DARKSIDERS Ending (Enhanced)

So I wanted to work on some more video editing techniques and with Darksiders 2 on the horizon I figured I would use the first Darksiders ending as a testbed.  Usually I work on most effects within After Effects but this time I started to mess around with Photoshop's video editing to use some of the plugin/fliters available there.   So within photoshop I used a few smoothing filters and the initial render wasn't terrible but I decided to run that render within After Effects and work with a toon filter to improve the shadowing and add a drawn look to the video which came out pretty well and you can see the results below.  Still a few things I would like to improve upon but I'll save it for the next project.
